Autumn Leaves … a sneak peek of new product coming in the Stampin’ Up! Sep to Dec 2023 Mini Catalogue for the Stamping Sunday blog hop for August 2023.
Stamping Sunday is a group of demonstrators from around the world who get together on the third Sunday of every month to share creativity. I am so thrilled to be included in this very talented group of stampers, so much inspiration! I want to thank them all for including me.
Our theme for this month of August is “You’ve Been Framed”. The challenge was to create a framed piece or create a frame on your card.
I elected to pull out some of my nested dies and create a whole raft of frames for my card today. I have used the Deckled Rectangle Dies and the Radiating Stitches Dies (an online exclusive only product).
I was pretty excited to find that the Deckled Rectangles Dies and the Radiating Stitches Dies are the same sort of sizing, so they work really well together to create lots of nested frames.
I have die cut various sizes in the Deckled Rectangles dies in both Fresh Freesia and Basic White Thick cardstock, and then also die cut the two smaller rectangular dies from Radiating Stitches Dies to create the inner frame. I have adhered frames together with d/sided tape at the back and then raised frames up with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the central panel is layered flat onto the first panel. Such a great way to create height and depth on your card front.
And now it is all ready to decorate however you like.
I chose to use some upcoming new product that I received this week as a “pre-order” .. as a demonstrator I get to order things early so I can try and them out for you. The Autumn Leaves Bundle was in my pre-order this month.
Autumn Leaves Bundle …
This lovely Autumn themed photopolymer stamp set and die bundle will be released in September, perfect for the Autumn months in the Northern Hemisphere. Here in the Southern Hemisphere, we are heading opposite seasons, so are heading into Spring in September. It doesn’t stop me loving the multicoloured foliage look of Autumn, and I hope the bright, pretty colour scheme is a good compromise!
I used the Autumn Leaves dies to cut out the leaves from white cardstock. These die cut leaves have little slits where the veins would be, and they pick up the ink colour wonderfully when applied with a small blending brush. I coloured my leaves in Fresh Freesia, Moody Mauve and Calypso Coral inks. I added some of the finer foliage dies (which are actually leaf veins for the stamped leaves, but I have just used them as “sticky” foliage for my leafy assemblage) die cut from Basic White and Calypso Coral card.
To finish off the card, I used a bow of Linen Thread and a scattering of the new and upcoming Adhesive-Backed Speckled Dots. Aren’t these little dots just amazing? Like little shiny droplets with a muted shimmery sparkle embedded in them … in colours of Mossy Meadow, Moody Mauve, Copper Clay and Crumb Cake. Mmmmm … they look good enough to eat!!
